The Paris Downtown Association, Lamar County Chamber of Commerce, and Paris Main St. have all voted to share the billboard ad space above 2 Clarksville St. on the downtown square.
The building, formerly Paris Winery — soon to be Gypsy Chic, is in a wonderful location, adjacent to the Plaza, at the intersection of Main St. and Clarksville.
Where the organizations have all agreed to share the ad space, they have not agreed on a design for the billboard. There is no dispute, they just want the design in place to best fit their needs and downtown’s.
They’ve decided to throw a contest calling all graphic designers, photographers, and creative minds to assist them in achieving this perfect design, while urging community participation.
What better way to inspire fun, creativity, and participation than to have a contest? Well, for starters, you make the winning prize of that contest cash.
“We need help with the design, so we’ve decided to open it to the public,” stated PDA co-president, Melissa Gordon of Paris Baby.
The winner will not only get their artistic design on a billboard on top of a building in our historic downtown, but also $300 cash.
You must move promptly, the deadline for submissions is May 15. The winner will be decided on by the Paris Downtown Association, Lamar County Chamber of Commerce, and Paris Main St. There are also a few requirements for the graphics.
The ad must read ‘Welcome to Historic Downtown Paris.’ It must also read ‘A Main Street City’ and the parameters must fit a 10′ x 26′ billboard.
The designer that is picked may or may not also be asked to make subtle changes to the graphics to reflect the downtown’s specific needs. The three organizations will be heavily involved in the outcome of the design, so you must be willing to work jointly with their officials to achieve the best possible outcome for everyone. Should you have any questions concerning the rules or requirements, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in having your design showcased for the next year atop a premier building on the historic downtown square — and winning $300 cash – please submit your graphics via email to email@example.com with the ‘subject’ line Billboard. Remember the deadline to submit is on May 15.
